A Birthday Card

This is a card I made nearly two weeks ago. I haven't been able to go up to my Studio since March 10th when I had a minor accident while on a field trip with some seniors from the school where I work. We were on a college visit and I missed seeing the step in front of me and fell on my knees and grazed the side of my face. It was raining really hard and we were on the way to the bus. I was trying to count the students ahead of me when I fell. The x-rays showed that everything is fine, but I really bruised the knees and could hardly walk for about eight days. It is slowly getting better, and I can now go up the steps (very carefully) to my studio. My DH has been great. (I'm so glad he is retired.) I'm going back to work on Monday, although I may have to wear my bermudas for a while, because it still hurts to have any material touch the knee that has a scab on it.

Back to the card - I love this bright paper and the cupcake had never been inked until now. I added some ice stickles to the cherry in the sentiment and on the cupcake. The frosting is colored with Liquid Pearls and I added fake brads from Joann's. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a great day!

Specialty Paper

Hi! I made a couple of cards last week and this is one of them. I really like this flower stamp, and hadn't used it in a while. I figured it is time for a Spring card, since we are patiently awaiting the season here in Michigan. I have this wonderfully marbled specialty paper that I don't use often enough, and I used my flowerpot and photo corner punches on it. I pop-dotted the flowerpot and added some rhinestone bling, after using my SU markers on the bunch of flowers. I really like how it turned out, and I can use it for any occasion. Take it easy and enjoy the weekend. Our weather dude says we are finally going to get a little warmer weather for the next few days. Woo Hoo!

Our Stamp Camp

Hello! This is a card I made at our last Stamp Camp with our Stampin' Up demonstrator, Crystal. She has lots of talent, so we made four wonderful designs this time. Our next one is on March 14, and I can't wait. This card is my favorite from the class. It uses the new Bigz die from Stampin' Up and now I have to get one. I love the colors she chose and the rhinestone finished it off beautifully. Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a great day!

Get Well Monique

Hello! It's Sunday afternoon and I've had a very productive weekend. I love it when I feel that way! I completed another card yesterday, which I will post soon.

I made this card for my daughter Monique. She had a very bad sinus headcold and is still recovering. I thought of her when I saw this image with the bunny in the little girl's pocket. The set is called "My Friend and I Stamp Set" from the Trafalgarssquare line, of Pink Papery Studios. (They have many awesome stamp sets there!) Monique has always loved the Velveteen Rabbit and this bunny is very similar. She loved the card and especially the bunny. Thanks for stopping by today.
